MODELLING A FUZZY SYSTEM FOR TEACHERS’ TRAINING DESIGN

Eliza Stefanova, Svetla Boytcheva

Abstract

This paper presents a model, based on fuzzy logic, aiming to support teachers’ training design. The complexity of the task of technology utilisation in education, leads the authors to decision to base its adaptive system on fuzzy controller. We shortly describe the system architecture and its functionality. The presentation includes also fuzzy model implemented in the kernel of the system, its components, linguistic variables and values. Further steps for improvement of the system performance are sketched as well.
